There's something that doesn't sit right with me when, on the day Osama Bin Laden resurfaced in a disturbing audio tape, cable television ends up in a game of name calling as a war protester is compared to Osama Bin Laden.
That's reason to be outraged - but even more outrageous is the fact that in a flurry of sound bites what was lost was a real discussion of the fact that more than four years after the devastating attacks of 9/11, more than four years after George Bush boasted we wanted Osama "dead or alive," more than a year after Osama Bin Laden showed his hateful face in yet another video, this barbarian is still very much alive and boasting of additional attacks against the United States.
John Kerry's diary :: :: Here's what I'd like to see debated on Hardball.
President Bush's mouthpiece Scott McClellan can claim this administration puts terrorists out of business, but yesterday's tape reminds us that instead of being out of business, Osama is still out there.
If this administration had followed through on the opportunity to capture Osama Bin Laden at Tora Bora in 2001, the world would be a better place with Osama Bin Laden brought to justice -- and we wouldn't be having this discussion today.
And here's what the media should insist we discuss.
President Bush and his defenders continue to claim that Osama Bin Laden didn't escape at Tora Bora. But Gary Bernstein's book Jawbreaker documents what I said early in 2002 and during my debates with George Bush: that because Donald Rumsfeld's Pentagon didn't use American troops to do the job and instead outsourced the job of killing the world's #1 terrorist to Afghan warlords, this cold blooded killer got away.
So what's the truth? There's a question that the full force of cable television should demand be answered. Press accounts over the last month have raised new concerns about the reliance on Afghan forces at Tora Bora in 2001. One account cited a Department of Defense document said to summarize the case against a suspected al Qaeda militant. The militant was believed to have helped Osama bin Laden escape from Tora Bora. More recently, August Hanning, the head of German intelligence, has said bin Laden bribed Afghan forces at Tora Bora to make his escape.
The evidence keeps mounting:
Isn't it time we had the truth? Yes or no, did Osama Bin Laden escape from Tora Bora in 2001?
Here's a subject suited for true hard ball, on Hardball: four years of failure - enough is enough - why hasn't Osama Bin Laden been captured or killed, and how will he be destroyed before he next appears on tape to spread his disgusting message?
That discussion -- rather than criticizing American citizens who exercise their right to free speech and express dissenting opinions - is the discussion that America needs. That would be the kind of debate on Hardball to which we should all tune in.
P.S. I want you all to know that Im reading your many comments. My wife Teresa reads blogs passionately, and I follow blogs too, and Im glad I can be a part of this and frankly Im not worried about taking some slings and arrows along the way. Ive faced worse! So keep the comments coming -- good, bad, hopefully not indifferent.
Did he forget to mention that he had been in Vietnam???
Traitorous moron, gigolo, liar, phony, and arrogant elitist. Another fine example of New England extremist liberals....such scum.
Ok Kerry, we'll give you an armored humvee, a .45 and drop you off at the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. Don't come back without Osama.....
Kerry needs heavy psychoanalysis. He does not get it. It's over. He lost. He will NEVER be president. Thank God.
What a loser. I mean, what a real loser this guy is.
Must be a fake. :-)
Yo Johnny, if your momma/wife let you stay up this late, answer me this: How long after we declared war on Germany was Adolph Hitler certified as dead?
Thank God is right! What a disaster he would have been... I kind of miss his entertaining rants and bullcrap from the campaign trail.... Rush would rail on him for 3 hours straight almost everyday!
Wonder what sKerry would do differently.
Osamas bin dead and buried.
My admiration for the courage and devotion to duty of the Swifties increases everytime this elderly and flatulent twerp tries to pass himself off as honest or relevant. I wish he had inflicted his phony wounds with a .50 M2 between his eyes.
Say what you want about this hellacious war in Iraq but Kerry and his 'Crats couldn't fight their way out of a paper bag.
And that tape killed how many people? Kerry is the one who is still "out there".
Many thanks Jim Rob or who may be moderating right now
Pretty funny from someone who's only longterm leadership experience was in running a muffin shop.
He does not have a clue, totally inept. Does he not understand that his criticisms of Tora Bora are not of Bush, but of the military? Bush defers to the boots on the ground to run the wars...
Jean Francois Querrie became the Democrat nominee by fluke. Until a couple of days before the IA caucuses he didn't have snow in Hell's chance, and now he thinks he is the automatic front runner for 08 and the voice of the Democrats. I still don't know who the F*** this guy is.
And more than four years have gone by with John Kerry in the Senate doing absolutely NOTHING about bin Laden except whine to the media like a spoiled little rich boy about President Bush.
Maybe John can volunteer for Afghanistan duty and finally earn those phoney purple hearts he scammed out of Vietnam. I served in Vietnam during the approx. same time Kerry did, and I'm from his home state, and I can say categorically that most Vietnam verterans detest this poor excuse of a man.
How on Earth can we know if it's Kerry or not? It's probably just some troll trying to make a splash.
Come to FreeRepublic and read what WE'RE saying about you...
Have you signed your SF180 and released ALL the documents to determine who was lying ---- You or the SBVT...
My money in on you as the liar...
The best thing about the lefties gettin' all angry about this?
Not ONE of them can deny the truth of it--they DO all sound just like Bin Laden. So, like the fool Kerry, they change the subject.
He's now entering the AL Gore-level of embarassment, shouting for attention, pretending he is a player.
If the previous administration had followed through on the 2 airstrikes and/or accepted the offer from the Sudanese government of Osama on a platter anytime between 1998 and 2000, 9/11 would have never happened -- and we wouldn't be having this discussion today.
LOL, I like your style.
About three and a half years, unless you want to get into speculation that Hitler didn't really die in the bunker on April 30th, 1945. For devotees of the latter theory, Adolf will celebrate his 117th birthday this April 20th.
You know he's a loser ... one of 18 people across the U.S. that watches Hardball.
Makes you even.
Neither does he.
John, you ignorant slut. Let's not even go to the "missed opportunities" gold mine.
He really posted that? What is it with loser Dem presidential candidates and going extreme left? Not that Kerry wasn't leftist before the election but he masked it pretty well. (See also Algore)
We can't know, for sure.
But it sure sounds like him. As if, more accurately, it were written by one of his writers...
So I guess Kerry will soon be calling FDR a failure in his execution of WW2.
He has had one over-riding passion, thought, desire from the time he was about 6 years old -- to be President of the United States.... he thought he'd finally married someone rich enough to buy him the office he covets, but even she doesn't have enough money to buy him a personality.
Darkwolf377: Congrats on a great post.
"Yo Johnny, if your momma/wife let you stay up this late, answer me this: How long after we declared war on Germany was Adolph Hitler certified as dead?"
Kerry is all about instant gratification. I doubt he could actually follow the series "24", as it wouldn't have an ending when he wanted it. Someone ought to tell Kerry some of these conflicts have gone on for CENTURIES. That ought to call him off the case.....
My guess is it's not him.
Yeah, and he's begging for a truce after we sent four of his posse to meet Allah.
What a maroon.
Whenever I think the Dems can't get more embarassingly pointless, someone like Kerry comes up with something stupid like this.
Wow. It's a race to the bottom. Edwards and his kook wife posted at DU, Teresa and John love Kos.
just a little out of touch with the real world.
Doesn't this total moron know that Bush is NO LONGER RUNNING FOR RE-ELECTION??????????????
Been there? Hell he singlehandedly won the war and negotiated the peace!
This guy really likes "living" in the past, doesn't he??
Instead of any real input into today...he is all about why didn't we get Bin Ladin in Tora Bora...
Well, we didn't...so what good does it do NOW...to event talk about it!!!
Let's instead talk about how you and silky pony wanted to SUPPLY Iran with the unranium that wanted for their NUKES...let's talk about that...hmmmmmmmmm...and what would YOU DO now,...bomb Iran...sanction Iran...give Iran the uranium still??
BTW..JOHN...GQ was right about YOU!!!
